What kind of metal are you thinking of?

Thrash-E standard/Eb
Nu-Metal-Drop C/Drop B
Progressive-E standard/D/Drop D
Death- Depends really, E/D/C standards normally.

More like a Death/Nu-metal

Maybe you could try C standard or Drop B, you may need to get your guitar set up for it.

E three octaves below standard, I don't think anyone has ever actual done that, but it would be metal as hell. You would have to get some sort of custom long scale guitar and put bass strings on it.

NO. NO. NO. Just NO.

There is a reason "E standard" is called E STANDARD. It's the key that is most played in. That out of the way remember there is nothing wrong with other tunings... .

DO NOT LIMIT yourself to one tuning. In the style you want to play in work with tunings that work for the song you are writing. There is NOTHING wrong with writing songs that are tuned down at all... but too many people associate "metal" with lower tunings and that is JUST NOT the case. Push yourself to work with all many different tunings and you will not only write more interesting music, but it will make you a better player more well rounded player. Who wants to just regurgitate the same thing over and over? Not me.
